5 out of 5 eggsThe Best USB drives ever!

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Built tough tough tough! Waterproof! Shock proof! Now with a cool Black look. My old one has endured 6years of abuse and is still working!

Cons: The thing is pretty big so may not work with those thin and light Ultrabooks. Random write speeds are average for this type of USB stick and slow.

Other Thoughts: It's my 4th Survivor! I've had the original (which still works after 6years of abuse) the 3nd gen and got these for a gift! Friend in the field loves them! Transfer speeds are average for a USB 3.0 drive. 85mb/s on seq read and 45mb/s seq write. Random read speeds are OK at about 8mb/s but random writes are slow. Still... there are very few drives out there that are really made to be used outside.

1 out of 5 eggsProblem with aluminum case.

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Drive works.
Should take some abuse

Cons: The threads on the cap stripped. This pretty much defeats the purpose of having a waterproof flash drive.

Other Thoughts: Wish the "tough" part of the drive would have lasted longer.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Sturdy

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: I no longer have to worry about keeping a flash drive in my pocket. I have it on a lanyard, it's heavy so it swings around and has bashed things pretty hard, I don't even flinch.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would buy again

2 out of 5 eggsProblem after 4 months

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Cheap per GB.
Water Proof
"Shock" Proof

Cons: Died after using it for 4 months.
No computer reads it now. It won't connect to my Macbook Pro or my desktop. I have tried all the ports and determined its definitely the flash drive.

Rather disappointed that a Corsair product died on me, but then again not everything is perfect.

Other Thoughts: This could just be my experience, but I'm rather disappointed because now I NEED to get another flashdrive because I was using this for my primary flashdrive.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Bang for the Buck

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Why would I buy a normal flash drive at the same price when I can buy this one that is waterproof and shockproof? It's fast and does what I need it to do. Thanks Corsair!

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Tuff

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Sturdy and fast. I mainly use mine as music storage for my truck stereo so being able to handle vibration, dust, radical temp changes and my abuse is a must. It's survived being left in the driveway after I dropped it in the snow and had to wait for it to melt to find it. I've stepped on it, dropped it on hard surfaces, left it in sub freezing weather and it still works and looks great. In fact the latest torture test convinced me to buy another one. The one time I didn't screw the cover back on to it, it rolled off the top shelf of my desk and landed in my big glass of ice tea. I don't know how low it was in there because I only found it when I took a drink and the ice had long since melted. I figured it was toast because it was soaked thru. I rinsed it off, put it under a light to heat it up to dry it out and after a few hours I put in my computer and it worked fine. Being USB 3 it reads and writes much faster then my older Corsair Voyager USB 2.

Cons: The label is starting to flake but after all I've done to it it doesn't surprise me. It is a bit long but it doesn't feel flimsy or cheap. There needs to be a key ring mount on both ends of the drive.

Other Thoughts: If you don't want to carry anything as big as a roll of nickels then don't buy this. It's also has some weight to it but it's what you'd expect for such a solid device. I've gone thru dozens of flash drives, destroying them, losing them or just getting frustrated at their speeds or lack of durability and I've found out that you get what you pay for. This thing was well worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsRugged Flash!

This review is from: CORSAIR Survivor Stealth 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model CMFSS3-16GB

Pros: Excellent build quality almost looks like military grade! I do a lot of moving around being in the United States Army so i love that all my gear especially the small stuff can be rugged like this little guy. Also being USB 3.0 i can transfer data very quickly. Being encased in allumium can take a load off my mind knowing that my data is secure.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: In the past year i have really began to absolutely love the Corsair brand. I have so many of their products and they are such high quality. They really pay attention to detail. And this product is no exeption. Keep it up Corsair!
